From Trinidad to the rest of the world, Queen Omega, one of the richest voices in the world-reggae scene, is back to spread her conscious Caribbean messages.

In the meantime, she is offering her fans, the "Stars Align" Ep, a side-project firmly rooted in her roots and whose first singles are already available. Written and produced in Trinidad and Tobago, it highlights the island of calypso with afro-digital sounds.
Queen Omega is originally from San Fernando in Trinidad. Encouraged by her mother, she began appearing on local talent shows from the age of 9, wrote her own calypsos and even went so far as to rap on national television. She later sang backing vocals for producer Kenny Philips, accompanying many soca artists in the studio and on stage.
Raised in a musicians family, she quickly became passionate about reggae and dancehall music, but also grew up listening to soul artists like Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston, jazz and traditional music from Trinidad, foundations that will inspire her throughout her career.
Inspired by her Rastafarian faith, she also rapidly developed her writing skills and it was in the early 2000s that her career began on stage in Jamaica. She performed there with the Solomon Band for the Caribbean Music Expo, met producer Mickey D, who took her to London the following year for a first series of liveshows.
